RIP: 31 shuttered Boston bars and restaurants that we'll miss
Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe
Well, you can always revisit the icon (which had an 87-year run) in the movie Ted. Or when it (hopefully?!) reopens in 2015.
This kitchen launched many a Boston chef’s career during its nearly 30-year run, and also turned out some iconic roast chicken.
After 12 years of placating Harvard kids’ collective sweet tooth, Finale had its... Finale, earlier this year, though the Park Plaza location remains open.
Nothing will ever quite replace the Newbury St institution "where anything can happen". Note: "anything" typically meant running into a famous athlete, making terrible life choices, or possibly both.
Sometimes, not even the brilliant guidance of Gordon Ramsay is enough.
So long, Monday night tapas. Central Square lost a fine rendezvous (!) point, but gained a replacement this fall in Viale.
Watch City Brewing Company
One of the area’s original brew pubs. Luckily Boston has many more of them than it did in the ‘90s.
When work was done and you needed some perfectly... acceptable Tex-Mex and a margarita, they were happy to oblige.
Indeed, all over America, 2014 was the year the cupcake died. But they WERE some pretty kickass cupcakes.
Garden at the Cellar
Oh, Butter-Poached Lobster and Housemade Tots 2.0... how we'll miss thee! Good thing we can still visit Chef Will Gilson at his Inman Square stronghold Puritan & Co.
The Wine Cellar
Shed a cheesy tear as Boston looks elsewhere for its fondue fix.
Centre Street Cafe
The Creperie on Newbury
The Dubliner Pub
Shanghai Social Club
